Becoming Whole podcast explores what it means to live a 'whole' life, where all parts of ourselves come together
- body, mind and spirit
In March I went on a 10 day silent vipassana meditation retreat in the Blue Mountains just outside of Sydney. It was all sorts of challenging intermingled with peace & quiet and incredible realisations.
After 100 hours of meditation; no talking, no eye contact, 2 meals a day and being awoken by a bell each day at 4am & no access to music, books, phones. I’ve got a bit to say about the experience! I talk about what I learnt and how the teachings apply to all of us and can really help in navigating this life for more health, peace and happiness.
Because after-all, happiness is an inside job.
There’s a beautiful quote by Pema Chodron that says ‘You are the sky and everything else is just the weather’. To sit and realise that we create our reality by the way we respond and react to life is both humbling and empowering. But it’s difficult to understand this logically with the mind, it needs to be a felt and visceral experience.
In this episode I intermingle the story of my experience with some real life day to day examples to help illustrate the learnings, mixed with some tips on how you can begin to experience some of this in your own life too.
I hope that you enjoy the episode.

For many of us, 2018 was a hugely transformative year. Personally I encountered many challenges. Actively and consciously I chose to interrupt patterns in my life that had been repeating and were no longer serving me. And in doing so I unravelled that bit more.
In this podcast I reflect on the big learnings that I took from the year, in the hope that this helps you in some way.
My big ‘why’ I run this podcast is that I know what’s personal is universal.
I know that what I experience is something that many other people are experiencing and I know that by sharing how I’m feeling that this helps others to heal and feel less alone. We’re all in this thing called ‘life’, together and as we evolve we can inspire others.
I do hope that you enjoy this episode. Let me know in the comments if any of these things resonate with you too.

She supports her students to do this through the erotic arts of light and dark work, anchoring energy on the earth, embodying our desires, & channelling the high light and erupting the riches that exist within us.

This week I bring my husband, Tom on to the show. He had a profound realisation while we were in Koh Phangnan in Thailand and I know that this is something that so many of us are working with at the moment – how to take action and not burn ourselves out.
Tom Gerrard is a go getter, he gets stuff done. He’s an international artist, and has exhibited in commercial and institutional galleries all over the world. He also has his own podcast, Benchtalk where he interviews artists worldwide in how to make a full time living from their passion and talent.
Tom has a great message to share in this amusing story. I have personally seen such a huge shift in his energy and his approach since this realisation. I have found from working with clients and continually working on myself, that when we are gifted these difficult and challenging experiences, it’s then always our responsibility to take the lesson and learning and see how we and grow from it.
I’ve found time and time again that if we build the awareness within ourselves, by slowing down, reflecting and creating some space, then we can begin to find the peace within. From this place we can create a life that flows more easily. Where we’re not trying to push and force and strive. It’s not something that happens overnight, but something we can continually work on over time.
Small things done consistently, create big results in our lives.
